Serving Rightly

Today's reading:  Genesis 6:9-22

The account of Noah and the ark is arguably one of the most recognized stories from the Bible. At first glance it's appealing because there are animals, a big boat and a miraculous beautiful rainbow. But when we really stop to think about this story, what's takes place is quite horrific. All but eight people living on the earth were destroyed because of the great wickedness of man.

It's a regular part of my prayers that God would help, guide and empower me to live rightly and blamelessly and that He would use me to accomplish His purposes. And I'm guessing Noah likely prayed something similar thousands of years ago. So as I took in this life--altering account today and considered the tasks and responsibilities God placed on Noah's shoulders, the weightiness of my regular prayer, hit me full force. "Thank you, God, for the reminder of my need to be fully prepared to do whatever tasks you put before me--those I find enjoyable as well as the ones I find difficult."
